My Rights to Due Process

On Behalf of | Aug 31, 2015 | Uncategorized

Due process in New York is always an area that needs to be looked at in terms of the type of employment that you hold. In the private setting there typically is no right to due process. Typically, the right to due process is found in employment in White Plains, New York that relates to governmental employment and where the employee is considered to be a competitive civil service employee or has some kind of tenure right to the job.  It also could apply to non competitive employees if they have held their position four or five years continuously without a break in service. The question to what Due process is,  is that you are entitled to circumstances really is a product of state law and state laws provides you with what is considered to be your property right.  There are exceptions of course, the government can get around applying certain due process protections.
